of southern elite schooling and populist instincts to bill clinton back when he brought his project of southern populist moderation to the democratic project back in 1989, 1990, 1991. so there's a road map here, and bobby jindal i think is the first one to jump on it, but he won't be the last. >> but the thing is though -- >> howard, go ahead. >> the thing is that jindal is sticking with the cultural conservatism. he's a brown educated guy with a rhodes scholarship, but he's for teaching creationism in the schools. a big part of the tea party thing has been resistance to opening the doors on immigration. that's something he's not dealing with at this point. >> right. >> i wonder how many immigrant families that come to the united states and want their kids to be doctors really want them to study this creationism as premed. do they want them to take organic chemistry or this other thing, this religious thing, john heilemann? are they serious? do they really want the doctors they go to to not believe in science? it's one thing to believe in your religion, which i do, but to go transfe
a phone call just after his death from former president bill clinton. ben's father is an old friend of the clintons. over the years, he has donated thousands of dollars to theirs and other democratic campaigns and over time, the families became close friends. >> ben, a beautiful man, with a beautiful life. some people live four times as long and don't do as much good or bring as much joy. >> why did you decide to call me? >> i called you in desperation. i wanted to know what to do i just knew that somebody needed to do something but that's why i called you. i thought you, a, i knew you'd care about it. b, i thought you'd know something about it. >> i could tell in your voice that you were pretty broken up what kind of kid was he? >> a light shined out of him. all i can tell you. he grew up, he was big, strong, handsome, smart. and wanted to make something of his life. he was industrious, but normal and liked to have a good time. i promise that you night he had no idea he was turning out the lights. none. and if it's true of him, it's got to be true of a lot of other people. >> as so
, but the republicans have substantial power because of the rules of the senate. the democratic president. as bill clinton would say, it's arithmetic. nothing is going to get done unless we find a way to work together. and i'll tell you, the public has just had it. well, you know, the approval rating of congress is in single digits. it's pretty awful. and it's all about, in my view, the inability to simply sit down and solve some of these problems. >> senator, quick question, brian sullivan from cnbc here. would you support a fiscal cliff resolution on taxes that did not involve an elevation of the top-end rate? in other words, 35 to 39.6, would you support a tax increase but only as boehner would like to do through the reductions or deductions, or are you fixed to that rate? >> well, i think we're fixed too much on this issue because it's only a small piece. even if you do the increase on the people above $250,000, it's a long way from solving the full problem. i'm a simpson-bowles guy myself in the sense that i think there's got to be an across-the-board settlement. so i think what you're really
